Overall a good GPS unit

✓Onoñdagegá, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this on an Amazon sale for about 1/2 price and must say it was the best value for the money at the time. I've own it now for about a year and have been very happy for a 2nd generate device. Pros-easy to create routes by several methods. -very accurate -icon that lets you know what lane to be in ahead of time. -easily toggle between speed, time and distance to go. -quick satellite acquisition.

you get what you pay for

  • Summary: Don't waste your money. I already own an icn510 which is great. I purchased this item for the other car expecting it to be newer and better. What I got was a unit that frequently froze up requiring me to pull over and reboot the system, (especially time consuming on the highway). Also it fails to indicate the name of the next street approx 30% of the time leaving you completely baffled if there are more than 1 street within 300 feet, which is not uncommon.

The worst GPS on the market

Richard J. Geisel-Churchill, Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: I have a 550 and have had nothing but problems. Sent back to Navman after 6 mos. of very light use because the touch screen stopped working. They took 6 weeks to fix it. Now trying to buy updated maps for US and told Navman does not support map updates for this product anymore. What a joke.

Dreadful service from Navman

Michael Carter, Amazon
10 September 2008
  • Summary: I bought this two and half years ago. I was spending a lot of time in the States and needed a GPS. I bought it because I thought once I got home I could get UK maps for it and fit them on the Hard drive. Now, as others have noted it's discontinued and I can't even get updates for the US, so I've had to buy a Nuvi for UK and Europe and TomTom software for my Phone for US trips.

  • Summary: The hardware and software interface is OK. But the map is out dated and there is no way to upgrade it.... I do not recommend this GPS unit.

Useless Over Time

T. Dorman "TimD", Amazon
15 October 2007
  • Summary: It is very unfortunate that you cannot get map updates for this GPS. Overall I found it to be well built, easy to use and efficient. However, I have had the unit for over 2 years. The maps are in serious need of up-dating and there appears no way to do that. There are many places in the country that are constantly changing (Palm Springs, Las Vegas, etc.) On my last visit to Las Vegas this device was practically useless as the map software is so out of date.
